Yes, the playoffs go through "those guys" in a town memorialized by the "Chairman of the Board:"

Frank was a skunk but he sure could sing.

Berrios will maybe last one inning before the storms come.

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. But a skunkweed will always be a skunkweed and instantly recognizable.

There's other ways to score runs that don't include bombas!

Check out my work at Purple Pain, a Vikings forum:

what, were you expecting a bomba from the leadoff hitter or something?

Wow, this Skoglund- Lanky, or what?

 

I think he must have majored in Gangling in college.

 

He's like the old cliche- turns sideways and sticks out his tongue, he looks like a zipper.

Meanwhile, the Yankees have hit two solo home runs to tie us up at 301 apiece...They're up against Palumbo on a hot night in Texas, so it may not be the end of it...

I wonder who is the largest leadoff hitter in Twins history?

He's pitching...and KC hits the first pitch for a single.

While its good to see Cron playing, he basically is only hitting ground balls now. And not to be too critical, but he was just jogging to first...and that has nothing to do with his thumb.

Rosario misplays a routine fly ball and KC has a cheap run so far.

Anyone surprised that NY already has 2 HR's? They may get 6 before the night is over.

 

This inning should have been over...one hit allowed and no runs. Tough break for Berrios. Rosario owes him one.
